Eating is almost always better when in the company of others, whether dining with a date or reheating leftovers with the cast of Frasier. Enjoy culinary company with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a three-course prix fixe dinner for two (a $50 value) at Pan Africa Restaurant & Bar. Pan Africa Restaurant & Bar's prix fixe menu engages dining duos in a gastronomic journey of authentic African appetizers, entrees, and desserts. Prep palates for spiced savories with two starters such as piquant piri piri prawns and lamb kebabs or veggie sambusa and a spicy tuna roll. Inspired by the cardinal directions, entrees such as the East Combo One—with injera, tuna kitfo, beef tibs, doro wott, and veggies—mark tongue passports with a regional stamp. Tailored to omnivorous or vegan inclinations, each two-person platter reflects local culinary traditions, from the West Combo One's curried goat, chicken yassa, and fish groundnut stew to the South Combo Two's tofu mesala, zucchini cakes, greens in peanut sauce, and curried corn. Coconut bananas and cardamom mangoes face off for affections in chilled rice pudding, and the mango cobbler delivers fructose to demanding sweet teeth. Couples can pick two desserts from the trio of options.
